Genre – Slice of Life, Romance, Drama, Josei
Episode – 12
Status – Complete
Story – Nishimi Kaoru has moved from city to city and school to school because of his father’s job, so having his first day at a new school was just routine for him. Being intellectual in addition to being a transfer student all the time, he has always been seen as an outcast. All he has had to do was bear it as usual until the next time he moved.
But things were slightly different this time. First, he started to get close to the class president, Mukae Ritsuko, and secondly, unlikely as it seemed, he grew closer to Kawabuchi Sentaro. Sentaro was infamous for getting into fights, skipping class and was an overall bad boy. Strangely enough, the three of them find common ground in music, namely jazz, and Kaoru finds himself actually enjoying the new town. *Source Mangafox
My review / Thoughts –
Ever wanted to just sit back and escape from reality by diving into the depth of love, friendship & melody? Then ‘Sakamichi No apollon‘ is the best choice for you. The show being a bit under-rated, I was really surprised by how much I loved it. In my opinion it’s one of those few Anime around that are true to their manga counterparts, or even better in some aspects. Intense story, real-life characters, ups and down of emotions and lastly, Music; all these features instantly made the show one of my favorites. This anime is something that I will remember for many many years.

I’m one of those thousands fans out there who is hoping to just wake up one morning with the news of ‘Akatsuki No Yona’ getting a sequel; and I don’t think I’m demanding anything that is unworthy of our time and attention. Here is why –
1. The amazing story deserves a proper ending:
The plot of Akatsuki no Yona was one of it’s key selling point. The story was thoroughly interesting which made the fans engaged to the series right off the bat. The enjoyment lasted throughout the show, however the incomplete ending didn’t do justice to this amazing series. The way the show ended only meant that the journey had just begun.
2. The ongoing manga has got some cool Arcs:
‘ANY’ is one of the few Anime that did justice to the original story of the Manga. Fans of the book know very well that the story only gets more interesting in the upcoming chapters. The manga is still on-going so lots of nail biting moments are there that can be the perfect source material for a new season.
I’ll keep it short. Who in their right mind wouldn’t want to see more of the ‘Thunder Beast‘? ❤ I can keep on watching this show forever only for Hak himself. Continue reading “10 Reasons why ‘Akatsuki No Yona’ should get a 2nd Season”

Name – Kyoukai No Kanata / Beyond The Boundary
Genre – Fantasy, Supernatural, Comedy, Romance
Episodes – 12
Status – Complete
Summary – Akihito Kanbara is a high school sophomore in the literature club who believes himself to be a “Meganest”, and although he appears to be human, he is actually half Yōmu, which makes him invulnerable to wounds, due to the fact that he can heal so quickly, and also immortal. One day, Akihito meets freshman Mirai Kuriyama when it appears as if she is about to attempt suicide by jumping off of the school rooftop. Mirai is isolated because of her ability to manipulate blood, which is considered heresy even among other members of the underworld, so she is shunned. Soon after Akihito saves Mirai, disturbing events begin to arise. *Source ANN
My Review/Thoughts –
A supernatural Anime with a good amount of comedy and romance, Kyoukai No Kanata was definitely something I was looking forward to. However probably because of my high expectations, the show failed to affect me the way I thought it would. No, I wouldn’t say it was thoroughly disappointing, but the overall impression was not quite satisfactory. Even though the Anime had it’s flaws, it can’t also be denied that it had few awesome moments at the same time.
Talking about the negative parts, I think the supernatural theme just didn’t work out, cause the whole set up was more fitting for the school life or slice of life genre. The way the show started, a darker tone was naturally expected, but as the story progressed it was falling short in this regard.
